EmersonAbout Us

RDA Design Group is a registered Veteran-Owned Small Business located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We were founded in 1988, and are licensed, bonded and insured. RDA is a licensed, insured and bonded company. We specialize in foodservice facility design for restaurants, institutions, healthcare facilities, fast food drive-ups, child care centers, churchs and more!

Our passion is to help our clients achieve their goals. Every project is a new opportunity to expand our creativity and provide the best consulting. We always give valuable advice on projects with planning, budgeting, equipment specifications, utility requirements and space planning. Our equipment specifications are always what the client wants and stay in the budget.

We follow projects through to completion to ensure the specifications are met. We have never failed to complete a project, filed an insurance claim, or filed for bankruptcy.

RDA's goal is not to tell you how to build, but to assist in planning and designing a kitchen that will handle your expected capacity. For example, if you want to have 5-7 days of food and beverage on hand and you serve 400-500 meals per day, you will need storage for 2,500-3,500 meals. If all those meals were all one size hamburgers, it would be very easy to plan the amount of food storage. But in reality, menus today are large and full of variety.

Santa Fe HSOur History

Richard Dobbs began his career in hospitality, working for a commercial kitchen equipment dealer in the contracting department. His job was to take architectural plans and specifications and prepare bids for foodservice equipment. While in this position he found that many architects and owners did not know about writing foodservice kitchen equipment specificaitons or designing foodservice facility.

After ten years he decided to start his own business as an independent foodservice facility consultant. Since then Richard and the team at RDA have worked to provide top quality service. We have worked on government contracts as well as foodservice facilities around the country. Our work has even brought us to India. We have never failed to complete a project, filed for bankruptcy or filed an insurance claim. We are a strong business who is always smart with their work.
